Cheer up man - In a couple weeks you might get to see me be social outside of the internet, which I promise you will make you laugh


Life is tough sometimes; but if it were easy then it would be boring!

Thank You Dear. I am terribly behind or is that too far ahead?
There are kind replies that I should have replied to but it seems embarrassing when it is three days out.

I miss my Shed family. This is one special place in the grand picture. A key note in a composition that would be ruined for eternity if it was lost.

I tried to quit my job today, but my manager went to great extent convincing me that all was good.
Here I am telling her I can't meat the requirements and I feel inadequate while she asks me what they can do to help.
I just wanted her to agree with me. So confused.

Can't you pm me? Lol


I could... but... I don't think you'd like it


Speak to anyone who has had the misfortune of having me contact them... I send messages near as long as a book chapter sometimes!

Too chatty for my own good, drive people away, lol.

Awww Wis, I hope things work out for you with your job.

Hiya Foss!

Kaelci, I love your long PM's! I do that too sometimes!

But that is the purpose of communication, that we express our selves, and make time to delve into the mind and hearts of others.
I too am "wordy" perhaps not worthy.

When I sailed I used to write epic long letters to people.
My time off was most often spent composing tales of my thoughts and experiences. Hand written mind you. With drawings and doodles. A month or so would pass between shipping a letter that would be more like a package.
And coming home the recipients would take out their letters and we would read them over again.

Receiving one was a treat, the longer the better.
Don't diminish your self dear, you have much to give.

Nothing gets my "panties in a twist" more than when I go out of my way to write a long, in-depth, heart-felt message to someone.... eagerly await a reply..... only to receive, "okay." or something of the like.

I think people should be more willing to sit down, and speak!
Whether it's with voice, or with the written word.
Sit down, take the time, and communicate.

I guess it's just a matter of finding those ones who wish to speak with you as much as you wish to speak to them.

I italicised that because I had a moment of inner discovery as I wrote it...
*lets out a deep woosh*



*I would just like to add that I would love to receive a hand-written letter full of thoughts and emotions, little drawings and doodles here and there. Such a thing would be a wonderful gift! Five pages, eight pages, ten or more! I would read them all and cherish every word.

Whoosh to you too, Little One, and that is said in the most respectful endearing voice.

I think this picture is appropriate as a comment.
a reply to: kaelci

Ahh yes, speak and share. But we are so fearful, we have become little rabbits scared of our own shadows so revealing our selves to each other in an honest manner is an awesome endeavor.

The letters and conversations over the years that I have had, granted me lasting memories and wisdom.
Now we barely scratch the surface of others. How has this become?

Wis, when you spoke of writing long letters, it brought back so many memories of having pen pals. Yeah, before computers and easier forms of communication. LOL! We would cut out interesting articles to share or pictures from magazines of gardens and craft ideas and recipes. We would talk about our lives and interests. It was so much fun. People don't look forward to getting bills and junk mail but we would rush to get the mail hoping a letter was in that mailbox. Friends from all over the world. Fun!

I must share a wee bit more. Forgive me.

I guess it's just a matter of finding those ones who wish to speak with you as much as you wish to speak to them.

Something I learned too late, but many years ago was, "Do not cast your pearls to swine" Our hearts, thoughts and lives are unique and precious. Don't bother with those who have no ears.

Hopefully the time for such endeavors hasn't past, perhaps stubborn souls can revive the art of correspondence.
Of tale telling.
Hugs

Yes, waiting for the mail man, at least where I came from. seeing the stamps, holding an envelope and opening it with anticipation. There would be a familiar scent from the different people.

I had a pen pal who had multiple personality disorder. He would send a hand written and a typed copy. It was so enchanting. We met twice in ten years of correspondence. But the letters where so rewarding.

Do you remember the wax stuff you could melt and then after some is dripped onto the back of an envelope, you had a metal thing with a handle and you pressed the design into the wax to seal the envelope? Or beautiful stationery of every kind? Those were cool!

I never got to meet any of my pen pals in person. That must have been quite interesting. With multiple personalities, I bet there was never a dull moment. Kind of sad though because something very bad had to have happened to him when he was younger.

I was just checking my little friends that are growing upon the window sill, and I saw this:


The ones on the other side of the pot are popping up to say hello now!!!
Little dots of green everywhere. Not greeting me as much as the other side just yet, but still, they're finally peeping out!

Very wise words, and I thank you.

It's funny, because I just started ranting, and my next sentence was "I guess it's just a matter of finding those ones who wish to speak with you as much as you wish to speak to them." and... I just sat back and stopped for a moment. And understood for the first time. An epiphany.

Kaelci, it is very rewarding seeing new plant life grow from your tender care.

Skid, did you have a bad day?
